HARTSVILLE, S.C. (WPDE) — A man has been arrested after police say a shot he fired from a vehicle during a domestic dispute struck a government building.
William Sherquon Brunson Kelly, Jr., is charged with two counts of attempted murder after he fired a shot Tuesday from a car in the 100 block of 7th Street that struck a window at the Hartsville Fire Department, according to Hartsville Public Information Officer Michelle Byers Brown.
Byers Brown said within 24 hours police had arrested Kelly. Brown added it has been determined the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute earlier in the day and was unrelated to the fire department.
Hartsville Interim Police Chief Byron Snellgrove said, “This arrest is the result of teamwork. At the time of the incident our Firefighters were able to get a description of the possible vehicles involved, which was immediately shared with all our officers. An observant officer on patrol located one of the vehicles and called in detectives who worked closely with our citizens and community to identify the parties involved.”
No one was hurt in the shooting incident.
“We are thankful no one was injured from this random act, the awesome teamwork with all agencies, and the quick arrest that the Hartsville Police Department made in this case,” said Hartsville Fire Chief Jeff Burr.
Snellgrove said they have zero tolerance for gun violence in their community.
“The citizens of Hartsville will not tolerate this type of activity inside the city. We will continue to work closely with our community, who are our eyes and ears, to stop crime on our streets by aggressively prosecuting those who commit them,” said Snellgrove.
